Edward P. Nathan, CPT, PhD, CRP, Manager, Field Talent Development, North East Division, Walmart
People have an innate ability to learn. We learn from the moment we are born to the day we die, and most learning actually takes place outside of the classroom. Research shows that very frequently, when learners enter a classroom, they turn off their innate ability to learn in order to be taught. This webinar shares successful, proven methodologies--with hands-on exercises for trainers to use to assist learners to take control of their learning.
After attending this session, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the differences between training and learning.
- Identify formal training factors that inhibit learning.
- Identify factors that can enhance student's innate ability to learn.
